Acute Charcot Neuroarthropathy – Preventing the Rocker Bottom Foot

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

Acute Charcot Neuroarthropathy – Preventing the Rocker Bottom Foot will be presented by Jeffrey Jensen DPM, FACFAS, Dean of Barry University School of Podiatric Medicine at this year’s Wild on Wounds National Conference in Las Vegas this September 7-10,2011.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Acute Charcot Neuroarthropathy requires first and foremost a “high index of suspicion”. Once diagnosed, we will address the conservative measures that would prevent the foot from progressing into the rocker-bottom foot that is susceptible to many further complications. We will also discuss adjunctive therapies in addressing acute charcot neuroarthropathy
